221. Hark! Ten Thousand Harps and Voices

1 Hark! ten thousand harps and voices
Sound the note of praise above;
Jesus reigns, and heav'n rejoices--
Jesus reigns, the God of Love.
See, He sits on yonder throne;
Jesus rules the world alone.

2 Come, ye saints, unite your praises
With the angels round His throne;
Soon, we hope, our God will raise us
To the place where He is gone.
Meet it is that we should sing,
"Glory, glory, to our King!"

3 Sing how Jesus came from heaven,
How He bore the cross below,
How all pow'r to Him is given,
How He reigns in glory now;
’Tis a great and endless theme,
Oh, ’tis sweet to sing of Him!

4 Jesus, hail! Thy glory brightens
All above and gives it worth;
Lord of Life, Thy smile enlightens,
Cheers, and charms Thy saints on earth.
When we think of love like Thine,
Lord, we own it love divine.

5 King of Glory, reign forever;
Thine an everlasting crown.
Nothing from Thy love shall sever
Those whom Thou hast made Thine own,
Happy objects of Thy grace,
Destined to behold Thy face.

6 Savior, hasten Thine appearing;
Bring, oh, bring the glorious day
When, the awe-full summons hearing,
Heaven and earth shall pass away;
Then with golden harps we'll sing,
"Glory, glory, to our King!"
